No Nonsense Catholic

Good information about the Catholic faith is more readily available today than ever before. Yet, there is still widespread confusion about Catholic belief and practice. Officially, it is the job of the Catholic bishops to clear up such confusion. But in the current reality, lay Catholics need to take it upon themselves to know, share, and defend their faith.

Every week Catholic author and speaker Matthew Arnold gives clear and simple witness to the Catholic Faith without obscuring, complicating, or watering down the exclusive claims of Christ and His Church.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said, ‚ÄúI am the way and the truth and the life‚Ķ and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free‚ÄĚ (John 14.6; 8.32). And that is no nonsense.
